Welcome. I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at Yale University and a Fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance and the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics at Princeton University. I am interested in the political economy of local governance, in particular in Sub-Saharan Africa. My dissertation research focuses on political oversight of bureaucrats and implications for public service provision in local governments in Uganda. It has won the Best Fieldwork Award and an honorable mention for Best Graduate Student Paper on African Affairs from the American Political Science Association. I use experimental, quasi-experimental and qualitative methods to measure causal effects and seek to disentangle the underlying mechanisms.
